Claudie is shown as a son on the 1930 census, but he is probably a neighbor's son, last name unknown.

Profiles can't be deleted, but they can be re-used. Generally when I have this happen, I just change all the details and use it for my next person.

      He was a nephew
      Thank you so much! It looks like Claudie is the son of Perney Wayne's brother, RD, by a wife we never knew existed. Also, no one knew what R D stands for. Looks like he was named after his father.

      Since Eddie tells us that he was a nephew then I would suggest you just disconnect him from the wrong parents then take a look at who his actual parents were and connect him to the correct branch of the tree.

      If Kris doesn't want him, I'll take him. I like making soldiers ;-}
      I love how you do the searching for folks, Eddie.  And now you want to adopt! Good going!
      Good to know he has a good home to go to when Kris cuts him loose Eddie.
